    As the title says really. I made SW chips for the second time today and even though they tasted really nice, they weren't exactly appealing to the eye.
    I par boiled them for 8 mins then put them on a try, sprayed with fry light and cooked on number 8 for 25 mins.
    What am I doing wrong ?

    I usually have mine in the oven for about 40 mins, maybe even a bit more, also make sure you are quite generous with the fry light, that seems to make a difference for me!

    I boil mine for 5 minutes, dry them with a kitchen towel - spray with fry light, sprinkle with salt then put it on the top shelf at top temp for 25 mins :)

    Yep, agree with this - also make sure you turn them over half way through, as I find the bit that goes brown is the bit in contact with the tray - so if you turn them over half way you get two sides of the chips properly browned at least :D

    After par boiling them, I dry them, fry light them, grind salt and pepper on and turn the over a couple of times spraying with frylight again if needed. I even sprinkle on curry powder on sometimes.
    Good luck!

    I cook mine in the microwave and leave the skins on. Prick the skins, cook them for about 10 mins, then cut them into chips and spray them.
    I found they were often a bit "white" or I boiled them to bits when I did them in a pan.
    Because you add no water, they are dry and so brown more easily I think.

    i tried them and they were really yummy. If you leave them in the oven for longer they will go nice and brown. x

    I peel mine, pierce them and put them in the microwave until soft, then spray with frylight and a bit of salt and put them in a really hot oven and leave them until they are brown and crispy.

    I boil for about 5 mins, shake them in the pot so they crumble a bit at the edges (makes them crispier) then spray with frylite and put in the oven at gas 9. I find that using rooster potatoes makes a good chip, they are really floury x

    Plus I just wanted to add Frylight Sunflower Oil seems to work better than Frylight Olive Oil.

    Hiya I do all of the above but I turn the grill on for the last 5 mins, I find this really helps.
